Since the late 1920s, American jazz entertainers have made pilgrimages to Europe.

As our series on jazz continues, we explore how the sound is developing in far-flung places these days. Where and how is jazz taking off in new directions?

For more on the genre's reach abroad, NPR's Tony Cox talks with bass clarinetist and multireedist, Bennie Maupin; flautist and conductor, James Newton; and saxophonist David Murray.
